Owelle-Rochas-Okorocha-696x418

Imo state Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has revealed that he would be contesting the 2019 presidential election but on two conditions.

They are: if President Muhammadu Buhari declines to seek a re-election and if 10 million Nigerians endorse him.

Okorocha gave the statement in Owerri, the Imo State capital, when he addressed a youth delegation from the 6 geo-political zones in the country, who paid him a courtesy visit.

He revealed that, as a child, the north gave him education and secured his future saying he was born of Igbo patronage, raised by the north and empowered by the west, hence, he needed nothing more than to be a detribalised Nigerian.

Okorocha also said that he is in politics not for personal aggrandisement but for the sheer glory of it and for the reason that he came to serve selflessly.

“I will not run in 2019 if President Muhammadu Buhari will be running. Even at that, I will not also run at any given time unless 10 million Nigerians endorse me.
